Josh Musher and I made a last minute arrangement to ride a loop on either side of the Charles River basin this afternoon. We drove to where Memorial Drive is closed on Sundays and rode up to Mass Ave, over the bridge (Smoot markings and all) and up to the Esplanade. We then rode back along mostly the same route, adding a little extra loop at the end near the Publick Theatre.
It was a fun hour or so of riding (about 11.5 miles) to continue to get a feel for the bike, this time in slower circumstances with lots of other foot and bike traffic on the paths.
The weather was beautiful and the ride was great. Thanks, Josh.
